The Cowboys weren’t “exposed” by Denver because they aren’t a fraud
The Cowboys got trounced on the road in Denver, and their usually machine-like offense sputtered at Mile High against dominant Bronco defense. Many immediately claimed the Cowboys were “exposed” in the game, but Colin disagrees.
He thinks being “exposed” implies that someone was a fraud to begin with, like Milli Vanilli or Bernie Madoff. The Cowboys may have had a bad game, but the basis of what has made them an elite team – offensive line, running game and smart QB play – is very real.
They put up a dud, but that can happen on the road, against maybe the best defense in the NFL.
LeBron will leave for L.A. to be the first star to win a title with three teams
Colin is more convinced than ever, based on sources he trusts, that LeBron is leaving Cleveland. Some who aren’t convinced that LeBron will bolt from Cleveland because staying put would give him the best chance to win another title.
While that may be true in the short term, Colin thinks going to L.A will give him a chance to be the first player in NBA history to lead three different teams to an NBA title. It’s clear the LeBron will never catch Michael Jordan in the number of career titles, but winning one in three places is an undeniable achievement that would permanently cement an untouchable legacy in a modern NBA where few players stick with one team for their entire career.
Even though the Lakers aren’t their talent wise, yet, if LeBron commits they could hit the ground in title mode in his first year with Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball, and by signing one or more other high profile free agents like Paul George.
